Easy vegan herbal latte mixes make great homemade gifts! Try chaga hot cocoa, turmeric moon milk, and a sleepy Ayurvedic nighttime milk. I love to keep these mixes on hand these dark days for easy to make cozy sips and beautiful small gifts. Having mixes like these on hand are perfect to give to people at work, or stocking stuffers, or to toss into a gift basket - just label and provide a few instructions. Easiest gifts all year.

For some more cozy drinks for cooler weather, try my vegan hot chocolate mix, easy golden milk, or calming lavender chamomile tea.

Top Tips

  • Use mini chips: for the chaga cocoa, mini chocolate chips will make for a more even hot chocolate and be easier to divide into portions when mixing with milk.
  • Think about the type of milk: not all homemade plant milks heat up as well. Homemade soy milk is ideal and cashew works pretty well, but oat milk tends to thicken when heated.
  • Sweeten to taste: for the moon milk and sleepy-time mixes, you'll sweeten after mixing with the milk. I like honey or maple syrup but you could use sugar too.

How to Store

All of the latte mixes can be kept in a cool, dark, dry place for up to 3 months. Any longer and the potency of the spices will start to decrease, so try to use up the batches within a month or two.

    1. So happy to hear you liked the post! These are Weck jars and they're amazing. You should be able to find them at kitchen shops or online 🙂

  1. These all look lovely, Sophie! I've been drinking a lot more tea lately and I would love to incorporate some of these mixes into the rotation, especially the Chaga Cocoa 🙂

  2. That ayurvedic sleepy time mix looks so especially dreamy (haha 😉 ), I can't wait to make it! I love making things like this as holiday gifts - they're so thoughtful and special.

  3. Hi Sohpie, Thank you for these great herbar mixes. Could you advise where and which Ashwaganda I should buy? Thank you

    1. Hey Carlos! I got my ashwaganda at Whole Foods, but any health-food store should have it. You can also buy it as dried root, but I prefer the powder since it's easy to toss into smoothies etc. I'm currently using the Organic Tradition s brand and loving it!
